Burglary Suspect Caught on Video in the Hollywood Hills NR18292gk

Hollywood: Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood Division are seeking the community's assistance in identifying a suspect who burglarized and apartment in the Hollywood Hills. The suspect was captured on neighbor's "Ring Doorbell" cameras.

On November 8, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. a burglary occurred in the 6700 block of Hillpark Drive. The victim was exercising in her living room when her doorbell rang repeatedly. A few minutes later, the victim heard noises in her bedroom. She went to investigate and saw a male black in his 20's, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and 170 pounds, wearing a grey long sleeve shirt and black pants rifling through her end table drawers. The victim confronted the suspect who fled through the front door. The investigation revealed the suspect entered the apartment through an open bedroom window by removing the screen.

Victims who experience these types of "hot prowl" burglaries are often left feeling vulnerable, hyper-vigilant and anxious. The violation of the sanctity of one's home is a particularly egregious crime. The Los Angeles Police Department relies heavily on the public's cooperation and assistance in the identification of these suspects to further the investigation and obtain successful prosecution.

Division. During non-business hours, or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).
